Event description
There is a proven best practice approach to effective volunteer management and we will explore some of those principles in this conversation

About this event

Managing volunteers is both similar but different from managing employees. They are the same in that engagement relies on good communication, clear expectations, and a culture of accountability. They are different in that the relationship between a volunteer and a volunteer coordinator (or ED, etc.) is vastly different than that of supervisor/employee. That means the tools that are used must be adapted or entirely different. This interactive and engaging session will explore strategies, tools, and techniques that will support you in setting expectations, facilitating regular discussions, sharing the right information at the right time, and dealing with issues as they arise.

Participants will:

• Explore performance management tools and models that can be adapted to help support volunteer engagement and accountability

• Build an individual plan for how to use tools and models

• Develop communication strategies that are right for the volunteer base (who, what, when, how)

• Practice using tools and skills to address issues

• Create a strategy for applying learning to current circumstances
